OneSpan Sign provides the most flexible and scalable solution to support all your signing and agreement automation needs. Whether you use our web application or integrate our solution into your core business applications, OneSpan Sign is easy to use for signers, senders, and developers. Discover our product features to get up and running with e-signatures.
Sending documents for e-signature is simple with OneSpan Sign. There are a number of options available from the time a document transaction is sent to your signers until the e-signature process is completed.
File Type Support
OneSpan Sign supports the following file formats: .doc, .pdf, .odt, .rtf, and .txt. You can also use the OneSpan Sign Print Driver to easily send transactions directly to OneSpan Sign from any Windows-based application. Simply print to “Send to OneSpan Sign” from applications like Word, Excel, Google Docs, and PDF to send your transactions for signature.
Standard and Custom Fields
Your signers can easily sign and initial documents in all the right places. Use standard fields to collect the following information from your signers: signatures, initials, names, titles, signing date, company names, and more. You even have the ability to create custom fields and reuse them to capture specific data from your customers.
Advanced Form Fields
Design advanced form fields including checkboxes, radio buttons, drop-down lists, text fields, label fields, and more.
Prompt your signers to attach supporting documentation during the e-signing process, such as a photo of a driver's license or additional PDF documents.
Retention and Archiving
Once the e-signature process is completed, e-signed documents can be pushed downstream and archived in your organization’s content management or other preferred system of record solution for long-term storage and retention.
Include auxiliary documents to your transaction, such as legal disclosures or terms and conditions for your signers. Signers can easily view, accept, and sign these additional documents.
OneSpan Sign lets you define workflows and gives you control over every step in the process to optimize the customer experience and ensure high completion rates. Build the optimal e-signature process and signer experience based on your business needs.
Serial and Parallel Signing
Distribute documents to multiple signers and set the signing order. You have the option to let signers sign one after the other or in parallel.
Templates are ideal to use for your frequently used documents. Set up signature and field placements to create reusable templates that reduce the number of steps needed to get documents out for e-signing.
Layouts are helpful for users who frequently send forms that include signature blocks and data fields which remain in the same location throughout the document. Layouts act as a blueprint and can be saved and applied to future documents with the same format and field requirements.
Choose which documents your recipients can view and sign. Designate individual document access in a single transaction with multiple documents, instead of having to create separate transactions for each recipient. What's more, this feature saves you from having to process documents your recipients don’t need to see, and it ensures that documents with sensitive information are viewed only by your intended recipients.
Text tags eliminate the need to manually place signatures and fields in your documents. By adding text tags to your document, after the document is uploaded to OneSpan Sign, every text tag is automatically replaced with the signature and fields at the right location.
Define the action a recipient needs to take like signing, allowing them to change signer, or simply approving a document. OneSpan Sign lets you customize a specific recipient workflow to meet your business’ needs.
Reminders and Expirations
Set up automated email reminders and expirations for your signers to complete the signing process on time. Reminders and expirations are powerful features to help you keep track of time-sensitive documents sent to your signers.
Hide or reveal data that needs to be captured based on the signer’s response to specific fields. Use “If/Then” conditional logic in documents to ensure signers only see the relevant fields based on their selections.
Place optional signatures in your documents to give signers the flexibility to complete a transaction without having to sign every signature field in the document.
Identity Verification and Authentication
Explore OneSpan Sign’s robust and flexible set of identity verification and authentication options to add an extra layer of security to validate your signer’s identity when conducting transactions online.
Email authentication is the default option OneSpan Sign uses to verify your recipient’s identity. The identity of your intended signer is verified using their secure name and password when logging into their email account. The signer simply clicks the link to access the document they need to sign.
The signer is authenticated through the sender’s system using a unique username and password. This could be an online banking portal, a government services portal, or even a OneSpan Sign account.
Verify your signer’s identity via a secure one-time SMS code sent to their mobile phone number. The signer enters the code into the login page and gains access to the documents that require signature.
Present challenge questions to your signer. These are commonly referred to as "shared secrets" since you need to formulate questions based on information you already have on file about your customer, such as the last 4 digits of their social security number or an application ID number. If the signer provides the correct answer, they are verified as the correct recipient of the transaction.
Government ID Verification
Verify unknown individuals remotely using government-issued IDs (e.g., driver’s license, passport, etc.). OneSpan Sign leverages digital identity verification to capture, extract, and analyze ID data in order to authenticate government-issued identity documents.
Signers can use the built-in camera on their mobile device to take a “selfie” and compare it with the photo on the government-issued ID document (see above). Pair with “liveness detection” (e.g., blinking, speaking, head tilting) to ensure the photo captured is from a real human. Signers can be verified in real-time and within seconds.
Knowledge-based Authentication (KBA)
Leverage third-party ID verification services such as Equifax to present the signer with a list of out-of-wallet questions in real-time. OneSpan Sign captures the responses and presents them back to the service provider for confirmation of the customer’s identity and approval to provide access to the documents for signing.
Government Smart Cards & Derived Credentials
E-Sign forms and documents using a digital certificate stored on a smart card, such as a Common Access Card (CAC) or a Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card. This provides two- and even three-factor authentication with something the user knows (the PIN for their smartcard), something the user has (the card), and sometimes even a biometric identifier (something the user is).
Leverage digital certificates issued by third-party Trust Service Providers (TSPs) or by your own public key infrastructure (PKI). We support digital certificates stored locally on the user’s system, electronic ID (eID) cards, remote digital certificates stored in the cloud, and hardware tokens to authenticate the identity of signers.
OneSpan Sign integrates with OneSpan’s multi-factor authentication and mobile security solutions to support strong authentication with one-time passwords (OTP) and/or visual cryptograms during the upfront user authentication and at the time of signing. Multi-factor authentication provides a constructive element of layered security by requiring users to prove their identities using two or more verification methods before they can access and complete the transaction.
Optimized Signing Experience
The signing process should be intuitive and easy for your signers. Discover the different ways OneSpan Sign offers an optimized signing experience anywhere, anytime, and across multiple devices.
Completely white-label the e-signature process and put your brand front and center on web pages and emails that signers see. Add your logo and customize the email content and sender domain to reflect your brand and retain full control over the look-and-feel of your web application. A fully branded transaction reinforces customer trust and ensures you achieve the highest adoption rates.
White-labeling also protects your brand and your customers and deters sophisticated phishing scammers from making you their next target.
Remote and In-person Signing Options
Send documents for signature and let recipients e-sign in a face-to-face scenario or remotely over the Web. Create the best signer experience for any channel and process – whether that’s online, on a mobile device, in a call center, in-branch, or in-person. OneSpan Sign is mobile-optimized and can automatically detect small form factor devices such as smart phones.
OneSpan Sign’s accessibility support enables blind and visually impaired signers to review and sign documents that are presented with supported browser and accessibility tools. This component respects the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA.
Mobile Signature Capture
Turn your signer’s mobile device into a mobile signature capture pad to capture handwritten signatures. Cross-device support for desktop users to e-sign from their mobile device. No app or plug-in required.
The OneSpan Sign mobile app includes an offline signing capability that enables you to sign anywhere regardless of your Wi-Fi connection or cellphone signal. Once internet connectivity is re-established, the app will automatically synchronize with the online service.
Use self-serve branding options from the Admin panel to add your company logo and customize the colors and text strings, so your brand is truly front and center with your signers.
Simultaneously review documents with signers by guiding them through multi-step agreement processes, pass control to different participants, and fill out and sign forms together. The goal is to recreate a face-to-face interaction – as if you were signing a paper-and-pen agreement in-person. Learn more about OneSpan Sign Virtual Room.

Bulk Send saves you time when you need to send documents to multiple recipients for signature. This feature helps eliminate the need to prepare individual transactions. Start by importing your list of recipients, prepare documents for signature, and press send. Your recipients receive a unique copy of the document to e-sign.
Fast Track creates a dedicated URL for your transaction that can be embedded into your website or secure portal. Zero integration or development is required. This feature is ideal for high volume, repeatable processes such as NDAs and standard contracts.
Security, Compliance & Audit
Some of the world’s most security-conscious organizations trust OneSpan Sign for their e-signature needs. Security is our priority. We take the necessary steps and have safeguards to provide a secure solution, to meet industry-standard security requirements, and ensure that data is safe at all times.
OneSpan Sign uses advanced digital signature technology, an encryption method to tamper seal documents after each signature and visibly invalidate documents if any changes are made. This built-in security guarantees the integrity of the e-signed document and helps protect you and your customers from fraudulent behavior.
Single, Unified Audit Trail
When legal disputes arise involving electronic transactions, OneSpan Sign creates the best possible evidence. OneSpan Sign is the ONLY solution in the market to capture a single audit trail of the entire agreement process – from identity verification and authentication to e-signature. This includes the ID and authentication check method used and the detailed results of the verification. As a result, you get a complete picture of the transaction with strong identity assurance to demonstrate compliance.
Embedded Audit Trail
OneSpan Sign also embeds details about the e-signature transaction within the signed PDF, including who signed, the date and time of signing, and the digital certificate used to digitally sign the document. The digital signature (hashing and encryption) allows verification of the validity of the document since the time of signing to ensure non-repudiation of the e-signed record. Easily verify the signed document by clicking the signature block. This opens the audit trail and automatically verifies both signer authentication and document validity.
OneSpan Sign strips out any dynamic content from the document before processing it. As a result, any form-field used as a vehicle to replace content via overlay is stripped from the document, and the attack will be automatically neutralized.
Security-conscious organizations are looking for assurance that the vendors they work with meet the necessary security requirements. OneSpan Sign is hosted in state-of-the-art SOC 2, ISO 27001, PCI DSS, FedRAMP and HIPAA compliant data centers around the world. OneSpan Sign meets additional security control and compliance requirements including: ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27017, ISO/IEC 27018, SOC 2 Type II, Skyhigh, HIPAA, FedRAMP, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), and National Security Agency’s National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP).

Key Management Service
